I wrote this poem as an offering for a group discussing spiritual trauma. It was really just the raw cry of my heart as I remembered the encounters with non-affirming Christians over the last 15 years since coming out as well as an expression of the peace I have found in my faith journey.
My wife of three years and I live with our dogs and cats in Mckeesport. I find great meaning in the journey of reconciling my faith and sexuality. Coloring outside the lines has become a consistent theme of my life and inspiration for new adventures.
